World’s smallest political quiz

Head on over to The World’s Smallest Political Quiz to see where you fit in on the political landscape. It’s very short and quite informative. Come back and let me know what you scored! My results follow.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is…

LIBERAL

Liberals usually embrace freedom of choice in personal
matters, but tend to support significant government control of the
economy. They generally support a government-funded “safety net”
to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation
of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,
defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action
to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

The red dot on the Chart shows where you fit on the political map.

It would appear that I’m in pretty good company, since JFK was also a liberal.

Liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in man’s ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow men the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.
– Sen. John F. Kennedy, September 14, 1960

Special thanks to JimT for telling me about this quiz.

  1. Apparently, I am on the same tiny graph square as you, but on the opposite corner: according to the quiz I am a centrist (right on that borderline with liberal). Thanks for the link.

  2. Brian,

    I’m not far away from you. I’m a tad more libertarian and a smidgeon more centrist. (Maybe the latter because I’m getting older…who knows.)

    Thanks for the link!

  3. Karen,

    Great! Glad you took the quiz.

    There’s a slightly easier way for us to tell where our red dot is, which I should have explained in my OP. See how the graph is numbered down each side? Wherever your dot lands determines your score.

    I’m 80/30. I think inel is 70/40.

  4. Brian,

    Glad you enjoy the QUIZ. On PERSONAL issues I scored 80%; on ECONOMIC issues I Scored 50% — right where Liberal, Libertarian and Centrist share the same coordinates.

  5. Hard core libertarian here. One thing that gets me is that people think libertarians (and I am a “little L”) are a branch of republicans. Not in my case. Socially liberally, fiscally conservative, and generally thinking the government should keep the F out of my personal business.

  6. jimthomp87,

    What did the quiz label you if you landed in the middle?

    cturpen,

    Because “libertarian” is so similar to “liberal”, I’ve always thought they must be pretty close in belief systems.

  7. This is me, fun little quiz!

    ACCORDING TO YOUR ANSWERS,

    The political group that
    agrees with you most is…

    .

    CENTRIST

    CENTRISTS espouse a “middle ground” regarding government

    control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on

    the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention

    and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

    Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

    tend to oppose “political extremes,” and emphasize what

    they describe as “practical” solutions to problems.

    The RED DOT on the Chart shows where you fit on the political map.

    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 70%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 60%.
    (Please note: Scores falling on the Centrist border are counted as Centrist.)

  8. Brian,
    I’m was pegged a CENTRIST since my dot landed on the border. Actually I’ve taken it about four times in the past month, just for fun, and usually fall squarely in the Libertarian sector.

    Part of the definition for LIBERAL about the “government providing a “safety net” to help the disadvantaged” got me to rethink, and modulate, on a couple of my answers which moved me a little to the “left”.

    One man’s modulation is another’s “flip-flop”: it’s what we centrists do. Keep an open mind, but not so much that your brains fall out. Always leave yourself room to grow.
